Fresh off their appearance on Saturday Night Live, Massachusetts-based electrop band Passion Pit popped into Washington, D.C, for a three-day sold-out concert series. Noticeable amongst the blazing lights, throbbing bass and harmonic lyrics was the appearance of an Alex and Chloe for HRC Purple Painted Heart T-shirt on bassist Jeff Apruzzese.
By joining the chorus of musicians and other Americans donning purple in recognition of Spirit Day, Apruzzese, a straight ally, is making a bold statement against bullying and standing up for bullied youth across this country.
From artists like Ke$ha designing a T-shirt in support of Spirit Day to band members like Luiza Sá of CSS (Cansei de Ser Sexy) and Apruzzese wearing HRC merchandise during their cross-country concerts, these artists are saying without speaking a word that they stand with the LGBT community.
